Bitcoin price bottom is in, says Fidelity exec as crypto market exits ‘extreme fear’

Bitcoin (BTC) has already hit its price bottom, one of the industry’s top executives believes as BTC price action stays above $40,000.

In a tweet on June 14, Jurrien Timmer, director of global macro at U.S. multinational financial services corporation Fidelity Investments, called time on any further Bitcoin price dips.

Bitcoin bulls increase confidence

BTC/USD maintained higher levels overnight on Monday after surging through $40,000 resistance. Despite not yet fulfilling traders’ predictions of a $47,000 push, the mood has become broadly positive on the back of fresh high-profile praise from the likes of Elon Musk and Paul Tudor Jones.

For Timmer, the time has come to look higher, not lower, when it comes to charting Bitcoin‘s next move.

“In my view, it looks like the bottom is in,” he summarized.

Fidelity has increased its Bitcoin activities in recent times, releasing a dedicated analytics platform and even applying to launch an exchange-traded fund (ETF). U.S. regulators began scrutinizing the application in late May.

Fear & Greed ditches the emotion

Meanwhile, another aspect of cryptocurrency which is back near 40 is the Crypto Fear & Greed Index — a classic sentiment gauge adding to the bullish mood.

After hitting its lowest in more than a year in recent week, Fear & Greed has rebounded to 38/100 — approaching neutral territory.

The Index uses a basket of sentiment measures to determine whether traders are overly bullish or bearish at a certain price, and therefore whether tokens are oversold or conversely due for a sell-off.
